Young Spain face France's forward threat in final


Spain and France meet at the San Siro stadium tomorrow in the Nations League final after a week in which the competitio­n, in just its second edition, truly delivered on its promise.uefa launched the Nations League in 2018 amid much puzzlement about the format and scepticism about whether such a competitio­n was needed or desired given the prominence of the European Championsh­ip and World Cup for national teams.

The argument from European soccer's governing body was that replacing friendly matches with competitiv­e games in a mini-group format, with a Final Four tournament at the end, would deliver better entertainm­ent value for fans and more meaningful action for the players.
